What Is Lymphedema

Lymphedema

is a swelling cause by a damaged lymphatic system.  Our Body is covered with lymphatic vessels.  These vessels are responsible for the transport, collection, and filtration of protein and the metabolic waste of inflammatory products in bodily fluids. 

If the lymphatic system is damaged, it can no longer process sufficient fluid, causing visible swelling in your arms, legs and feet. 

Lymphedema is a chronic disease that can be effectively treated.
